When digital technology was first used in our schools, it was a tool for teachers to communicate with students and parents. Today, students are using technology to support their learning. In 2013, Alberta Education developed the Learning and Technology Policy Framework. Policy 1 of that framework focuses on student-centred learning. Technology is used to support student-centred, personalized, authentic learning for all students.
Parkland School Division was recently asked to share all the great work happening in our school division when it comes to Policy 1. In our third of a series of four videos, we feature how students use technology, online learning and digital learning to develop and apply digital citizenship and technological skills.
21st Century Learning Coach Twyla Badry from Prescott Learning Centre is one of many voices you’ll hear sharing the story on digital literacy and citizenship.
